Rebeca Andarias is Spanish, but lives and works in Italy for the United Nations


Rebeca describes this photo: "I am wearing a T-shirt and a scarf of my favourite Italian soccer team, Lazio.  It was taken 2 days before the end of the 2000 championship when nobody could believe Lazio would win the last match and Juventus (which was the first at that moment) could lose its match.  But, in fact, two days after, 14 May 2000, Lazio won and Juventus lost so we became champions.  I forced Alberto (who is a Roma supporter and, as such, hates Lazio because it is the rival team) to accompany me to the celebrations in the streets."

"I was 5 years old.  It was the first dancing performance of my life and we were dancing "Puppets in the string" which was at the top parade that year.  In fact I am dressed like a puppet. It was a success, I have been told, as we were all dressed the same way and performed really well.  FYI, we were 30 little girls."
